Frida Kahlo is an artist from Mexico. She was born in 1907 and died in 1954. She is known for her self- portraits, Frida Kahlo said that she paints herself as she is alone so often. In her self portraits she always puts facial hair and a mono brow on herself.
Frida Kahlo inspires me because she was in a severe accident involving a bus and a car. She was in a full body cast for 3 months. She fully recovered however she would have relapses of extreme pain, which continued for the rest of her life. Considering all of this, she continued to be creative and didn't make any excuses to not paint.
I also love reading her quotes to motivate and inspire me. Here is my favourite quote by Frida Kahlo.
- "I paint my own reality. The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes my head without any other consideration."
Who is your inspiration? I would love to know.
